Things have gotten crazy around here. My kids have been sick with fevers off and on, my kitchen light completely stopped working just in time for me to cook dinner after the sun went down, I had a huge project at work, and somehow my skin started acting very strangely. Naturally, I found that the perfect time to test a foundation.
The wonderful people of Rouge Bunny Rouge sent Milk Aquarelle Foundation in Cashew Milk Parfait for me to test. With sophisticated yet whimsical packaging, Rouge Bunny Rouge is luxury to its core. Milk Aquarelle Foundation has a $52.00USD price tag, which is nothing to scoff at. The weighty glass bottle, smooth trigger pump, and beautiful cylinder box all work into such a hefty price. But more importantly, so does the incomparable formula.
First off (and most importantly, duh)….helloooooooooooooooo, olive goodness!!! Can you even see where it’s blended? Look closely…I’ll wait.
I know, right? Green undertones to the max, impressed me right from the start. The texture is liquidy (water is the first ingredient), spreads across the skin quickly and requires little to no effort to blend. Seriously. This stuff blends in right while I brush it on. It makes morning makeup way quick. The coverage is light-to-medium, the finish natural, and the overall look awe inspiring.
Cashew Milk Parfait is too dark for me in winter so it might be worth be trying Almond Milk Parfait. But I just don’t care because it is so amazing! As opposed to some foundations, I don’t mind wearing Milk Aquarelle under my eyes and it does a decent job of covering my circles while still letting my skin breathe and look like skin. Without primer I touch up with powder around the 7-8 hour mark. My skin recently went from balanced to combination, so it is certainly safe for both skin types. Milk Aquarelle Foundation would also work well for dry skin as it contains plenty of hydrating, nourishing, and softening ingredients.
For my olive loves out there, I’m sure you’re all curious how Cashew Milk Parfait compares to our other limited shade matches. Look no further!
Cashew Milk Parfait is darker and slightly more green than NARS Stromboli, darker and more green than Cover FX G50 Cream, lighter and slightly less green than Becca Olive, and darker and more green than Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Luminous Buff.
The closest matches in color are from Becca. Cashew Milk is lighter than Olive and darker than Nude. Because the RBR undertone is so spot on, I plan to mix it with a lighter foundation or just blend it down my neck until I see the sun again because my skin looks so flawless.
I’ve been wanting to try Rouge Bunny Rouge products for ages. Between the packaging, trinkets, and stories (not to mention seasonal promotional looks that blow my mind), RBR had me starry eyed for the last couple of years. I am so pleased with the quality and look forward to sharing more!
